Windows Key + X doesn't work on win 7 desktop

Hi guys Im Stelios , new here, I'm having a situation here with my pc regarding a Windows shortcut, the one in the title. All default windows shortcuts work fine ,all of them but the win +x ... My system is a desktop Windows 7 64bit and on my searching around the net , I found out that Windows Mobility Center is by default deactivated on desktops, on the other hand I found and correctly use these instructions. Now I'm able to use Windows Mobility Center but without the use of that specific shortcut. Whenever I try the shorcut, that known ''bing'' sounds and then nothing. I also tried this and this. please help.
